Day 6: Today I am thankful to have my faith and confidence in God.
A God who holds the world in his hands, and has complete control.
I must admit, I was a little disappointed with the election results.
But I have faith in God, and in his perfect plan, and though I can't see the purpose now,
I know He is going to work it all out for good.
*I loved that the people at Romney's watch party sang God Bless America
Day 7: I am thankful for my amazing birthday gift - tickets to Les Miserables
This was my third time to see Les Mis, and I loved it more than ever.
It may even be my favorite musical of all time.
It's a tough choice between it and Phantom, it is that good.
I might have cried about 5 times during the show: partly due to sadness, partly due to how perfect it was.
My favorite songs were the two finales: One day more, and Do You Hear the People Sing.
And my favorite character was young Cosette. She had the most amazing voice singing Castle on a Cloud. Incredible.
Michael's favorite characters were the innkeepers.
He literally hated the rest of the show.
His favorite line was by Jean Valjean: ...to love another person is to see the face of God.
It was the perfect birthday gift!
And I've been singing the songs all day long.
Here we are before the show, on the night that was full of people fighting for their voice to be heard.
